WHAT WOULD YOU DO JASPER ENGINE


Recommended Posts

My main service truck is a 2007 F-550 with the 6.0 diesel in it. It has a Jasper rebuild engine and tranny in it not sure of the mileage as when they were put in due to the fact I got it from one of our other stores, and they can't produce the mileage.

 

So yesterday it started losing power. We don't work on Diesels here so I brought it to a very well known shop. Come to find out it needs all 8 injectors replaced at a cost of $4300.00. So here is my dilemma do I drop $4300.00 on it or do I go for a new one? Now keep in mind this is a boom truck for doing farm and loader tires and the cost is very well into 6 figures.

 

So I would like to know your thoughts spend $4300.00 on a truck that has 243,000 miles on it and in my opinion a rebuilt engine and tranny from a company with a very bad reputation. Or spend over 6 figures on a new one.

I stopped doing Jasper diesels. I get better value from Ford with their reman units, and they come in with a better warranty than Jasper and cheaper by a few hundred bucks. Jasper has all kind of commercial warranty restrictions.

Had a company in pittsburgh rebuilding engines & trans, prices were great, warranty was good, quality was good, and then they got a contract with FoMoCo to only do Ford Engines and sell through the dealers. Still looking for a good place to buy remans after that happened.

 

Most cars around here that need engines are about 10 years old or more, most customers won't put $4500 into just to purchase the reman. After labor and misc. parts the bill can push $7k on a car barely worth that, which is why I hardly even call Jasper for a price.

Ok, let's slow down. We're a diesel shop and I'm here to tell you somethings fishy with this. I'll be glad to help. If you are interested pm me and I'll give you my cell number.

There is no repair on this truck you couldn't make, no diagnosis you couldn't perform. The other shop may not have the correct the diagnosis here.

I'd recommend calling Asheville engines. They offer a MUCH better product that will protect your customer from future failures - better price and better warranty.

I agree. We service over 120 trucks on several fleets. On mission critical trucks, we have installed Bullet Proof Diesel external oil coolers and egr systems. http://www.bulletproofdiesel.com/Articles.asp?ID=307

We see stiction causing a cold engine misfire which would likely cause a replacement of all 8, but my price on an OE injector is around $200, labor is roughly 6 hours. Stand pipe and dummy plug is roughly $120.00. We also see ficm failures cause power loss and low power. Loss of power and louder operation or almost "knocking" typically leads to fuel pressure or combustion gas in the fuel. Lots of upgrades that need to be done.

We've found we can offer a better product faster by leaving the cab on!

      I recently spoke with a friend of mine who owns a large general repair shop in the Midwest. His father founded the business in 1975. He was telling me that although he’s busy, he’s also very frustrated. When I probed him more about his frustrations, he said that it’s hard to find qualified technicians. My friend employs four technicians and is looking to hire two more. I then asked him, “How long does a technician last working for you.” He looked puzzled and replied, “I never really thought about that, but I can tell that except for one tech, most technicians don’t last working for me longer than a few years.”
      Judging from personal experience as a shop owner and from what I know about the auto repair industry, I can tell you that other than a few exceptions, the turnover rate for technicians in our industry is too high. This makes me think, do we have a technician shortage or a retention problem? Have we done the best we can over the decades to provide great pay plans, benefits packages, great work environments, and the right culture to ensure that the techs we have stay with us?
      Finding and hiring qualified automotive technicians is not a new phenomenon. This problem has been around for as long as I can remember. While we do need to attract people to our industry and provide the necessary training and mentorship, we also need to focus on retention. Having a revolving door and needing to hire techs every few years or so costs your company money. Big money! And that revolving door may be a sign of an even bigger issue: poor leadership, and poor employee management skills.
      Here’s one more thing to consider, for the most part, technicians don’t leave one job to start a new career, they leave one shop as a technician to become a technician at another shop. The reasons why they leave can be debated, but there is one fact that we cannot deny, people don’t quit the company they work for, they usually leave because of the boss or manager they work for.
      Put yourselves in the shoes of your employees. Do you have a workplace that communicates, “We appreciate you and want you to stay!”
